Saint Catherine of Siena, the Mystic
Catholicism: The Pivotal Players Series
Catherine is the only lay woman ever proclaimed a Doctor of the Church. She possessed a remarkable instinct for delivering a word of encouragement – a straightforward, illuminating word – just when it was needed. The span of Catherine’s life was marked by enormous change and upheaval, both within the Church and in society in general. Catherine and her contemporaries witnessed the damage caused by wars, countless natural disasters, the terrifying horror of the Black Death and a Papacy residing in Avignon, France.
